Kanyana Park is well-maintained throughout the year. Visitors can also take a dip in one of the swimming holes nearby, just be cautious as it’s best to avoid them after there has been heavy rainfall. There’s another lovely park in Kureelpa that’s worth visiting too: the Arthur Roberts Park in the hinterland is considered a hidden gem; it features sports facilities such as a cycle path, basketball court, and swings – though, the main attraction here is the flying fox.
Not too far away is the Mapleton National Park, a beautiful recreation area with lots of outdoor activities available. Its facilities include toilets, sheltered picnic tables, wood barbecue pits, easy walking tracks, viewpoints, and a walker’s camp. Horses and trail bikes are allowed on certain areas within the park too.
Kanyana Park and the nearby sights are worth including in your Sunshine Coast itinerary.
